Alicante

Capital of the Costa Blanca

Alicante also known as the “City of Light", is a city of contrast. As the capital of the province of Alicante it offers a rich cultural heritage. Known for its historic port that is overshadowed by the medieval Castle of Santa Barbara this city has so much more to offer… Once you set foot in el Barrio de Santa Cruz in the old town (Casco Antiguo) and stroll through the lively narrow streets with quality boutiques, cosy bars and restaurants you understand why Alicante is such an attractive place to be. Apart from its privileged climate, wonderful beaches, and easygoing atmosphere, it offers all the advantages of a major city: shopping, fascinating award-winning museums and a vibrant nightlife.




Gastronomy

Time can be an issue when trying the gastronomy based on the fresh produce and seafood from its local waters. Consider checking out the Alicante tapas scene- a great way to sample a variety of specialties in one evening! The energetic nightlife, from elegant cocktail lounges in the harbor to the laid-back pubs in the old town, Alicante maintains the relaxed, easy-going close-knit port town it has always been.




Colorful Contrasts

Revel in the contrasts of its diverse medley of architectural styles, or take a lazy stroll along Alicante's most beloved and characteristic landmark “La Explanada” composed of 6.6 million colorful marble tiles. Be in town for fascinating festivals like Hogueras de San Juan (A popular, one week long festival where the city is the stage of gastronomy, nightlife and bonfires). To sober up and lose some of those Spanish calories you can always take a relaxing day trip to the beautiful island of Tabarca and take a refreshing dive to marvel at its beautiful marine reserve.




Alicante has mastered how to impeccably balance its many characteristics as a coastal metropolitan and is definitely a city you will want to visit!
